Girl Drink Drunk

My friend Adam is a notorious girl drink drunk. He’s not a fan of the taste of booze and never seems to have gotten that place so many people arrive at freshman year of college where a Fuzzy Navel or Woo Woo sounds like a great idea. He was in town this week, and lo, he ordered a Sex on the Beach with dinner. We got him back in line with decent drinks at The Gibson, but later that night at my place he requested I whip him up a girl drink. Now, I don’t doubt that I can do some fine things on the fruity side of the cocktail world, but because I’m out of town this weekend, I don’t have a lot of groceries in my house. As a result, I was stuck without fruit juice or fresh fruit to indulge my friend.

Instead I whipped something up with Domaine de Canton, Vodka, and Campari. It was too bitter for Adam.

My second attempt was received far better by my oh-so discerning (well, what’s the opposite of discerning?) audience:

Girl Drink #2
1 oz Lillet Blanc
1 oz Navan Vanilla Liqueur
1/2 oz triple sec

Stir over ice and strain into an ice filled rocks glass.

Make no mistake, this is a very sweet drink…and my girl drink drunk friend Adam loved it.
